That looks like a Fabbri drop tower, and I have photos of Wade Shows' Fabbri Mega Drop racked from 2003, I will look for the disk with the photos and post them. Racks on two trailers (one is a pup). [:)]

Chris-

Actually the Mega Drop is not what Sven is looking for. While the rides are similar the Mega Drop:

http://www.flatrides.com...ex%20Pages/megadrop.html 

is taller and uses a cable-driven rig that raises the ring of seats and pushes them downward pneumatically, while the Jungle Drop:

http://www.flatrides.com...%20Pages/jungledrop.html 

is shorter (about 90 feet) and uses a chain lift like a coaster. The only ywo Jungle Drops I know of in the U.S. are owned by Libertyland Park and Robertson Amusements.

In germany the new year just begun. SO!

HAPPY NEW YEAR ![:D] (40 minutes ago).
I saw the jungle drop at your site (bouncemankev) and kind of liked the colour-scheme.
Pics of the Megadrop would be Ok, too. Because i think i have to improve my model of the ride a bit. Though i know, how it looks racked.
Thanks to all for your help.

@SDS-Mike
Thanks! Wish you lots of fun tonight and take care.

@on-topic
OK! I just saw, that on of bouncemankev pics you can have a closer look at the centerload.
Just two questions left:
- Where is the end of the trailer? Front or back of the ride?
- Does it have the normal three axes?

Sorry!

Just thought about the direction of the trailer. My brain is not working correct at the moment, due to my illness.[^]
The electric-controls of the Fabbri-towers are always at the end of the load.
